IGWE SNEAKERS SUSTAINABLE PARIS SHOES RECYCABLE

ABOUT US

Innovation Goes With Environment
Our production is clean, our work methods are clever, our designs are experimental.
We recycle what we produce.

 

In 2018, igwe was created in a small studio apartment in Paris. The brand finds its inspiration in urban architecture and 2-D graphics and from design to reality, it takes shape and grows into dimension.The complexity and innovation is subtle through the design, as it is minimalistic yet original.
Igwe differentiates itself through its sustainable and high quality components, which are meticulously sourced throughout Southern Europe. Our sneakers are hand crafted in a traditional sneaker factory in Portugal. And our supply chain process has been carefully implemented to reduce CO2 Impact.

We recycle what we produce.

In a limited world paced by an ever growing economy, igwe is the universe we have created for ourselves. It finds a common ground with all the others: time, space, and matter. Igwe is a symbol of our own Utopia. It evolves with us, as we experiment, create and observe. It is our brand and our motto.

With a Master’s degree in Industrial Design, Samuel expressed a desire to produce responsibly and sustainably early on in his studies.
Thanks to Samuel’s avant-garde vision and strong ethical values, the idea of igwe came to light. The brand aspires to make a change in an environmentally limited industry through an evolving product: the sneaker. After sketching his first designs during FW18 fashion week, igwe launched in October 2018.

Our production is clean, our work methods are clever, our designs are experimental.
